Ruling: 
Confirmation denied for bad faith due to debtor's prepetition conversion of nonexempt property to nonexempt in order to avoid making sufficient payments to former divorce counsel.
Issue: 
Could debtor's plan be confirmed where debtor proposed to pay only 10 percent of debt to divorce attorneys despite having purchased exempt homestead prior to petition date with funds received in divorce settlement negotiated by those attorneys?
